“overpriced brunch, very average food, nice ambiance”

We had Sunday brunch for $58 per person. One glass of wine $17 and one burger for $35. The brunch looked beautiful But the quality did not match the price. No real eggs, no great veggies (except lettuce), no quality meat. All the huge chunks of bad brie and goat cheese came from Costco. The bread was so so. The dessert was just a series of cream-filled pieces of cake and ice cream. No cake made of fresh fruit. The fresh fruit was not fresh (strawberries piled in a juice). At noon, the meat had been sitting there for hours, was full of spicy bad quality meat. The eggs came from industrially mixed eggs. The pieces of raw salmon were sitting outdoor for hours and not refrigerated. I did not touch those or I would end up in a hospital. I had hoped to find organic ingredients, great fruit, fresh meat. One of us had a filet mignon that looked like a piece of thick leather and we had to return it. It was just awful. Now both their restaurants are terrible.

The name of the place doesn't do it justice. It's beautiful, has a great full menu along with a beautiful Buffett.
